The railroad in St Marys didn’t delay us too long and we arrived at Colleton State Park in South Carolina just before they closed the gates at sunset.
We did stop for more bread on the way and found another Sprinter camper van, this one a Roadtrek, parked at a Publix. Couldn't resist parking beside them.
Colleton overlooked the pretty Edisto river. The park ranger was very accommodating and encouraged us to come back for a winter break. They only charge half price if you sign up for a month during the winter. We explored the boardwalk through a cypress swamp before we headed out the next morning.

We made it home to Durham just in time for me to prep for a minor medical visit. The procedure went fine the next day and I recovered in time to sing with the Heart of Carolina Chorus at a Christmas concert in the nicely decorated Cary Arts Center.
During the unseasonably warm week that followed we cleaned and winterized the van. The plumbing should be safe from the freezing temperatures that are bound to come soon.
We wish you all happy holidays and a peaceful New Year.
